Kody Brown insisted his rocky relationship with Meri has improved on the Sister Wives Tell All special. But it appears their marriage continues to be strained, as he spent Mother’s Day with Robyn and Christine instead.
Second wife Janelle was also snubbed from the festivities at Robyn’s Flagstaff, Arizona home, as she spent the day at a local farmer’s market instead.

In the photos, Christine, 47, could be seen carrying two six packs of locally brewed beer to Robyn’s rental home.
Daughter Ysabel, 16, joined Kody’s third wife for the celebration.
Nothing For Robyn?
“Someone else must have been doing the food, because all Christine got out of the car was the beer,” an onlooker told RadarOnline.com.
Christine and Ysabel parked on the street and hiked up the driveway to the 7-bedroom, 7-bathroom home that Robyn, 40, rents for $3,500 a month.
“There was room to park the car in the driveway, but they parked on the street,” an onlooker told RadarOnline.com. “It’s like ‘that’s Robyn’s home’, they didn't seem entirely comfortable.”
Where’s Everyone Else?
There were no TLC camera crews around to document the awkward Mother’s Day get-together, which seemed to be missing Kody’s first wife Meri, 48, and second wife Janelle, 50.
As RadarOnline.com reported, Janelle was spotted around 11am on Mother’s Day scrolling through a downtown farmer’s market alone.
“She kept checking her phone like she was expecting someone to show up, but no one ever did,” an eyewitness told RadarOnline.com. “From what I observed on Mother’s Day, she seemed very lonely.”
On the season finale of Sister Wives, Janelle admitted that living in a plural marriage has been difficult for her.
As for Meri, her daughter Mariah was vacationing in Bali for the holiday, according to her Instagram. Meri, who is an active social media user, didn’t post on Mother’s Day.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Kody and Meri have had a strained relationship ever since she fell in love with another man online. She later learned that the man was actually a woman. Kody also divorced Meri to legally marry fourth wife Robyn so he could adopt her children from a previous marriage.
On the season, Meri admitted their marriage is in trouble. "It’s hard to be here and work on these relationships in the family," she said. "I’m looking in from the outside. I don’t feel like I have a husband and wife relationship." The family feared throughout the season that Meri would leave them.
But on the Tell All special, Kody admitted they are working on a “new beginning” and that the “past is gone.” "We are dating," Kody said of Meri. "We literally got to a place that was nasty. We’re not doing that anymore. It’s a new date, a new girlfriend, a new person."
